I don't know if I can prove to Beck meant to misled his audience, however it seems to me he would have spent a considerable amount of time explaining his reservations about the woman's story before showing the video. As it was, three minutes and 18 seconds in the video below before he said anything and even then it only consumed about 10 seconds at that. You could have sneezed and missed it. And if this was a legitimate story, why didn't Fox's news readers cover it? Watch the video and use your common sense.
Regardless of the facts behind the claims she made, her making them was totally inappropriate behavior period. There is absolutely no justification for what she said in that video... None. Her job was to offer assistance and advice to the people of the community they served, and you just don't say things like that to the public, especially when you are representing a government sponsored public service organization.
Like I've said a hundred times, this was never billed as "confession of a murderer", it was billed as "look at the story this nut told".
What I'll never understand, is how you or anyone else would believe that the people watching this story, could have possibly walked away thinking that a murderer worked for ACORN, when it was stated quite clearly that they didn't know if it was true, and never once did anyone at Fox who showed the video say such a thing. Just because some lady said it, doesn't make it true, and even if a person were to watch the video without anyones commentary, I can't imagine they would walk away believing the woman was some murderer who had escaped justice... It just goes to show the powerful effects that politics can have on some people.

You stated that Beck said he didn't know if her story was true which he did. But certainly gave credence to it. Here is what he said before showing the video:
I think that qualifies as showing the video as fact.
BECK: If you didn't think that there should have been an investigation before, what I'm going to show you tonight will boggle your mind, and, if at the end of the hour, you still don't think there should be a rigorous investigation and you wonder why, if we want to figure out how the president wants to community organize, why he's surrounding himself with members of ACORN, well, then, I don't know what else to do.
For the remainder of the hour, we're going to take this video apart piece by piece, because, this one, not only involves prostitution, illegal aliens, tax corruption, and fraud, but also an admission of a woman killing her husband. Remember, this is now the fourth city.
